OUR VISION

 

We believe in a world where the tech industry is driven by a diverse group of leaders.

We believe people of all different backgrounds should have the opportunity to participate, shape, and succeed in the founding, funding, and building of technology-driven companies.

 

Problem

 

The tech industry proudly builds the future, but in many ways still operates in the past.  

The lack of diversity in tech has created a culture and economy that disadvantages women and minorities in raising capital and in building ground-breaking companies with lasting impact. Many backgrounds are woefully underrepresented in the homogenous tech industry, and many founders are disappointed by the lack of diversity when seeking investment partners.

MISSION

 

Our mission is to accelerate the success of female funders and founders. 

 We believe that by improving the success of women in the venture-backed tech ecosystem, we can build a more accessible community that reflects the diversity of the world around us. 

 

Goals

 

Double the % of female partners in 10 years

Over the next 10 years, our goal is to double the percentage of female partners from 9% to 18% at US tech venture firms with fund size >$25M.

Increase the % of female founders in 5 years

Over the next 5 years, our goal is to increase the percentage of venture funding going to companies with a female founder from 15% to 25%.
